The Mayor Pete Kennedy
Weekdays 9am - 3pm
Born in Canandaigua NY, Pete Kennedy grew up the youngest of 5 Irish kids. His dad "Ham" was elected as Mayor of the city of Canandaigua and served 14 years while his youngest son Pete stole the title "Mayor". Ham earned the title and Pete pilfered it.
Pete helped a bunch of his buds at St. Marys School to found an actual radio station that played music over the PA system during lunch. Many of the nuns were less than impressed by the musical selections this young mob played over WSMR. Later, "Mayor" also served as captain of his beloved Canandaigua Academy football team the Braves.
After successfully graduating from SUNY Geneseo where he spent many hours "studying" humanity while DJing and bartending at the world famous Inn Between, he headed to the bright lights of the big city of Rochester NY where he's been rockin' Rochester radio waves for 25 years, now crankin' great tunes on 100.5 the Drive.
When not heckling callers and having fun with them on air, he's actively out working' the streets at various community and charitable events. Last year alone he was involved in over 120 events and has plans for many more in 2012.
Here's the video that is spreading virally around Rochester and the planet. I post it so you can decide for yourself before many accusations start flying. I have a couple of questions: would you want to be a police officer involved in this situation? Would you be able to remain calm and under control in a stressful situation? When a police officer gives you a lawful order, should you not obey as the law states? Does being "pregnant" allow you to resist authority? With all the violence we've seen in the city over the last couple of weeks, many demand action from the police. When they try to enforce the law, do they become the "bad guys"? Just questions I think of while you view for yourself HERE. You can decide for yourself. Remember, there's sometimes 3 sides to every story....
